Lyrics

King of the Past (Ian Roure)

History hasn't gone your way
Somehow, some fairness has somewhat held sway
And Kodachrome colours complicate
When a black and white world is just a tyrant away

You've joined the caravan going back
In a procession of lies
One day you hope and pray your flag at last
Will be so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past
In your black and white world

History hasn't gone your way
And the last thing you need is some more of the same
You want a ticket to '51
And a prophet who claims he'll make that kingdom come

You've joined the caravan going back
In a procession of lies
One day you hope and pray your flag at last
Will be so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past
In your black and white world

We're all on the caravan going back
In a procession of lies
Now that it's come to pass your flag at last
Has been so proudly unfurled 
By the King of the Past
Here's your black and white world
Here's your black and white world
Here's your black and white world
Here's your black and white world
